This semester, I worked on a photo story with the East Oakland Boxing Association(EOBA), a program that provides boxing lessons and after school care to under-served children in one of the most violent parts of the bay area. The boxing lessons help teach students about self discipline and give them a way to protect themselves. EOBA also provides tutoring, cooking classes and a safe place to play for students who don’t box.
Jontah Bailey, 18, helps Lamore Payne, 11, wrap his hands before training him. Lamore is a newcomer to EOBA and hasn’t boxed before.
